    Thoughts on Vardy’s potential rest?

    Thoughts on Vardy’s potential rest?

    I'm planning on captaining him so make of that what you will :-)

    Leicester need to bounce back, can't see why Rodgers would rest him tbh


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,179 ✭✭✭ Dr. Bre


    With all the talk of rotation I will do well to field eleven I reckon !


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,402 ✭✭✭✭ extra gravy


    Pope
    TAA Rico Soyuncu
    Mané Maddison Grealish KDB
    Aguero(c) Vardy Jimi

    Button Cantwell Lundstram Targett

    Good luck all

    Yeah they need to bounce back but he’s played a lot of football. Rodgers hinted very strongly at resting him a few days back. I was thinking on benching him but maybe that’s too risky.

    That is silly. Even if he doesnt start he comes on for 25/30 minutes against a tirig defence with Roberto behind them.....

    All week had Jiminez still on the bench. And this is obviously a really tough fixture. But he is so consistent. And Zaha and Ricky are not........should I bench one of them instead???????
    team currently is
    pope (MUN)
    rico (bha) soy (whu) TAA (WOL)
    zaha (sou) ricky (new) mane(WOL) grealish (wat) alli(nor)
    Ings (CRY) vardy (whu)

    henderson (mci) jiminez (liv) lundstram (mci) kelly (sou)


    I have a LOT of players away from home so need to get bench and captaincy correct


  • Registered Users Posts: 758 ✭✭✭ howareyakid


    Really struggling to pick a team this GW. It’s currently:
    Heaton
    Dunk TAA Digne
    Grealish KDB Mané Pogba
    Vardy Maupay Abraham
    Bench: Zaha Rico Lundstram

    Feel like Zaha could do something against Southampton so thinking of changing back to my preferred 3-5-2 and benching Tammy.

    Zaha always seems to be better away from home so I don't think I'd bench him. I'm starting Jimi but fully expect him to be on the bench. Ricky who knows. Are you benching Kelly because you have Ings?

    I would bench Pogba before any of them
    He is going to be playing deep now with McT out, isn't fit and they are palying the exact type of team they won't break down

    I am benching Kelly cos Saints are flying it and Palace keep conceding since I bought him!!!!!The reality is I watched them the 2 games before I bought him too and they were BLESSED to keep clean sheets.Rico is similar but has much more attacking threat.

    Why do you expect Jiminez to be benched? I cant see it

    Could be a good call.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,022 ✭✭✭✭ Iused2likebusts


    Pope
    Soy aurier femenia
    Kdb mane salah alli
    Jiminez vardy ings

    No transfer . Captain salah. Was convinced kdb would be benched this gw but him going off early last night has me confident he will start now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Here we go

    Bound to be some rotation

    Foster
    Robertson Rico Webster
    Alli KdB(C) Manè Alli
    Maupay Vardy Jimenez

    McGovern, Kelly Lundstram Dendoncker

    Thoughts? KdB(C) looks pretty certain to start, right?


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,771 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Reading Ancellottis comments I am thinking of benching Ricky now.......had lined him up to sell for a hit for KDB anyway so this might be the best compromise !

    What did he say about him?

    Not him specifally
    Just that he is likely to make a lot of changes

    Nothing to base it on really, just think Cutrone might get a run out because of the short turnaround but hope I'm wrong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,722 ✭✭✭✭ gammygils


    FT banked

    Heaton
    Soyuncu, Rico, Aurier
    Alli, KDB, Mane(c), Grealish
    Maupay, Abraham, Vardy

    Pope,Zaha,Lundstram, Kelly


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,771 ✭✭✭✭ km79

    Jota is more likely to be rested than Jiminez but who knows

    Wolves have 45 hours between games, there is no chance there won’t be rotation. Jota went off early last night, they have Cutrone and Neto to step in. I’d be surprised if they start Jimi tbh and I’ll be benching him.

    Going with:

    Gazzaniga
    Dunk, TAA, Soyuncu
    Mane, KDB, Alli, Richarlison, Cantwell
    Vardy, Ings

    Ramsdale, Jimenez, Kelly, Lundstram.

    I’ll be pleasantly surprised if I don’t end up relying on Lundstram due to rotation though!

    Start Jimenez away to Liverpool

    Or

    Kelly away to Southampton

    Rashford, Ings & Kane or Vardy, Ings & Kane? So basically Rashford or Vardy. It's such a tough call.

    His Wife Rebecca is due one of these days - so he could easily be "rested" for that as well - it's very easy for his to be in the squad and then leave if his wife went into labour - risky put armband on him imo. But then again - I think it will be 90 mins or nothing type game so just have a guaranteed starter for VC

    I think Palace are actually quite good when they need a goal so I’d start Zaha.

    Tough call between the other 2.

    I don’t like Richarlison anymore and can’t wait to sell him at the first opportunity.

    I’ll be keeping Jimenez for the season.

    That said it’s a very tough call this weekend. Coin toss.

    I suppose Jimenez has given you no reason to bench him. Richarlison has.

    I’d be very careful starting Alli twice, once is enough maybe?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,936 ✭✭✭ klopparama


    Rockstar on Twitter -


    BHA V BOU

    Dunk is back! Maupay, Trossard, Montoya start.

    No Connolly
